Last October’s opening of the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside Trail was a major event: the 3-mile trail connecting southwest Atlanta neighborhoods from Adair Park to Washington Park was arguably the largest above-ground investment in the area since MARTA was built decades prior, and the path offered residents a new option to get around town, exercise, or socialize. But with its abrupt endpoints at University Avenue and Lena Street, the segment was essentially an island.
Despite getting knocked out during the Major League Soccer playoffs, Atlanta United FC did not disappoint in its inaugural season. The team ended with a 15-9-10 record, showcased an aggressive style that resulted in the second-most goals of any team that season, and built a rabid fan base that packed Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Guiding the club was Gerardo “Tata” Martino, who led world-class squads such as FC Barcelona and his native Argentina’s national team before coming here.
On Wednesday, Georgia lawmakers in the House of Representatives and Senate approved their chambers’ versions of legislation that would create a new regional agency that could kickstart a long-awaited expansion of bus and rail lines throughout metro Atlanta. If successful, the effort could end decades of bickering and delays over building a new mode of transportation that could shift the way the auto-centric region develops, and how people move to jobs and about their lives.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
